Dustin Dietz

I was born and raised in Dallas, TX and have loved the Texas Rangers since I began grade school. I played the great game all throughout my youth and had aspirations of becoming the first native Dallasite to be voted into the Hall of Fame as a Texas Ranger. After I witnessed a 90 mph fastball for the first time in ninth grade, I realized the dream of being a pro ball player was rather delusional. Since then, my goal has been to work in the game of baseball in some form or fashion. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Radio/TV/Film from the University of North Texas, and I pray to the baseball gods daily I witness a Rangers World Series victory before my death.
